â¨A key plank of the UK governments plans for a local TV network has been delayed, according to UK press reports.
The plans outlined by UK culture secretary Jeremy Hunt called for a chunk of spectrum to be allocated to a national spine after which local licences would be issued.â¨
According to the UK reports, the costs associated with setting this spectrum aside and difficulty associated with introducing the necessary regulation to force incumbent digital TV platforms to make an EPG slot available, have caused delays.
The national spine may not now launch until after the local services roll out.
